The coffee-house elitists who believe metrication should be universal, and
mandatory in the US, are at it again. Take a gander at misc.metric-system
which started about a month ago and is now running as hot as forged steel at
Least we be swayed by the lull of decimal ease... the US is the world leader
in innovation, invention, technology, consumer goods, manufacturing
technology, quality assurance and wealth creation... maybe not because we
use the Imperial system, but it sure hasn't stopped us as the Metrication
people claim. The metrication advocates sing a pretty song that sounds good
to politicians. If we don't continue the battle, they will win by taking the
Imperial system from us and force us all into the decimal quagmire.
Can you imagine that your workshop would improve if you gave up your jobbers
set of fractional drills, number drills, letter drills and .001 incremental
reamers? And this is just the start! Give me a number 7 drill and a quarter
twenty tap please!
